Stihl RE130 Plus

I have owned the unit for approx 2 years & used to clean cars & pathways. Used in total about 20hrs. The trigger failed on the third use & found the plastic trigger valve had split. I contacted the dealer & was given a new handle from a new unit on the showroom floor because the replacement had not arrived after 3 months. The same valve has just failed again in the exact same manner as the first valve. This is a design fault & should be recalled & an updated model supplied. I will advise again when I contact Stihl & see what is offered.
The unit otherwise has been faultless. Show details

Stihl, Setting new bench marks

The management and staff at Stihl should feel very proud of themselves every day. I am a Stihl convert and love every product I have purchased, The engineering, innovation, performance and in particular the reliability are in my opinion without peer. Being on the land our pressure washer is constantly used to turn mud sculptures into useable and recognizable pieces of equipment. Show details

Lemon laws need to apply

Lemon laws need to be applied to stop companies charging ridiculous amounts of money for rubbish products that aren't fit for purpose.
Pulled apart the handle because it was leaking
Trigger valve split under pressure made of plastic
Stihl get your act together
Won't be be buying anything Stihl again either
I have expressed my opinion to family and friends and be sure the extent will travel further

Gun handle valve has a design flaw

The gun handle pressure valve on the Stihl RE 130 plus has a serious design flaw and should be recalled or replaced with something more Stihl like quality. I have had this washer for less than a year (using it once a month) and the plastic valve inside the handle has cracked on me twice. When this plastic pipe either side of the valve cracks it is useless and just leaks all over you. My machine is now back in the repair shop for a second time and really disappointed as I have used Stihl gear for more than 30 years.
Happy to chat with anyone at Stihl if you take notice of your loyal customer reviews. Show details

Worst pressure washer I’ve ever had

Have gone through 2 pressure regulators and 4 different wands all with in 6mths. Luckily it’s under warranty. Poor quality and the hose reel is terrible. Update: hose has since exploded . Legit only used it a dozen times Show details

Re 130 plus rubbish

Leaking water from trigger valve went back to dealer 4 month wait on parts to repair. I have never been a Stihl fan this just confirms what I have always thought. As for the dealer they have no idea, they just want to take your money with no product support at all. Show details

Not worth the money

Looks great but gave problems from the start. The cheaper pressure washers is much better. They can make Chainsaws but has a long way to go before the pressure washers will be on the same level.

Just out of warranty and has pump issues

I bought Stihl for the name as I’ve been using their chainsaws for decades. My 130 plus is lucky to be used once a month so approximately 25 uses.. water now pouring out of the pump and no pressure.. Not worth the bill to pay for repairs, hence I might go with gerni instead. That’s if they aren’t making them in the same factory, for a$ 600 washer I expected more from the Stihl brand considering my last Different brand lasted 12 years.. Show details

Rubbish from Stihl

Bought new. Just out of warranty and seals failed. Cost $400 to fix at the dealer. Now I need new nozzles as they have failed. Very disappointed with the product. Show details

Absolute rubbish. Avoid

Have had machine for two years, bought as I wanted something reliable and decent compared to the cheap machines. Only used it 2-3 times in that period to clean a small domestic driveway. 2 months out of warranty, seals blew inside the machine. Came back from repair, and within 5 minutes, started making horrible noises and smoke started pouring out of the machine. Never again.  Show details

1 year, flawless operation

Used for automotive detailing. 1 year in and perfect so far, no issues at all. Used once a week for about 30mins.

The Stihl attachments are a joke, go aftermarket for everything also, the wand works well enough but requires cleaning every time I use it. Show details
